I have been firmly two stilettos on board with Blood, Sweat and Heels since the show premiered last season. In the overblown world of Bravo Housewives shows, BS&H served up something different: i.e. real women doing mostly real things in a surreal environment. Now season 2 is upon us with most of the original cast intact, plus a few new wild cards thrown in to stir things up.
Back from last season we have New Yorkers Daisy Lewellyn, wacky TV personality and style guide author, Demetria Lucas D’Oyley, dubbed the “black Carrie Bradshaw” for her blogging/writing prowess, Geneva Thomas, style marketing director, Melyssa Ford, former video vixen and current real estate protégé, and Mica Hughes, (my FAVE!) former model and current modeling/talent coach. New faces this season include Arzo Anwar, Afghan native & celebrity stylist, and Chantelle Fraser, founder of “Flawless NYC” agency, which books entertainment and talent for high end events. The only castmate axed from last season’s lineup was Brie Blythewood, resident bougie chick. Good riddance to her wooden carcass, I say.
“Kendra and Hank will relive that very same journey in WatchIt With Kendra and Hank, which will allow viewers to experience both of their reactions to the episode,” explains WE tv. “Kendra and Hank will appear on screen in a picture-in-picture window for the entire encore – discussing what is happening on screen as the show unfolds.” See clips of WatchIt with Kendra and Hank below.
Last Friday the Real Housewives Of Atlanta filmed their reunion, which as you can imagine sounds pretty divisive (although far less insane than last season!). Despite the cast claiming to have worked through issues in therapy and on their trip to the Philippines, their subsequent blogs and interviews have been vicious and point to feuds remaining very much alive! Reacting most publicly to whatever happened at the reunion was NeNe Leakes!
NeNe announced she will no longer be blogging or discussing RHOA! “So many of you have asked me how was The ATL Housewives Reunion! What did I wear and how was my hair LOL! Obviously I can’t speak on it but I can say these things….(1) I feel like I been in a daze for the past few days! Really mentally drained (2) I went in feeling very at peace and I had mentally accepted things I could not change. (3) I had made my mind up that there were people I would NEVER talk to again in life….but God! Won’t he do it! #RHOAREUNION #WAIT4IT”
The ladies show up at the airport in good spirits. Porsha Williams had more Louis Vuitton luggage than she has brain cells and negotiating the luggage carousel in heels was like the second coming of Sheneneh. Porsha must look cute because she may meet her future married African sugar daddy husband at the airport! All the single men would rather endure an endless TSA security checkpoint, than deal with PoorTaste – or her baggage!
Upon arriving at the airport Phaedra Parks hid in her limo cause ‘a Krayonce was ‘a comin! She’s been on RHOA trips before… Despite Claudia’s protestations that the Philippines will be positive vibes, Phaedra declares these women would argue even at the second coming of Christ. Of course they would – because Lord knows all of ’em ain’t getting into heaven!
We begin this week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians with Scott Disick accidentally walking in on Kris Jenner in her closet while she is getting dressed. She spazzes and screams at him to get out of her space! Scott immediately runs downstairs to tell Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian that he did not intentionally try to creep on their mom and Kris whirls into the kitchen freaking out about wanting to have some private space as she flashes everyone her S&M bra under her robe. First of all ew, but also somewhat impressed as she looks good for a woman her age trying to pretend she’s 30.
Later on, Kourtney is in the kitchen with Khloe Kardashian and Khloe mentions that she thinks Scott is up to a shady business deal as all these multiple exotic cars are popping up in the driveway and there are about 10 different license plates strewn upon the counter. Like what is he up to? He could very well have a legitimate biz going on and while I don’t blame him for attempting to expand his skills of profiting outside the realms of reality TV, I highly doubt he’s doing anything resembling a la Guidice to make a buck. We’ll see what he’s up to later on.
I think most of us can agree that it’s about darn time that Bethenny Frankel used some of her bajillions of dollars to enlist some public relations help in regard to her image. The once former, now returning, Real Housewives of New York star has always been a polarizing force in her spin-offs, her contentious divorce, a short-lived daytime talk show, and just her personal life in general.
After bidding farewell to the reality show that made her a household name, the skinny liquor maven is returning in the upcoming season, but Bethenny has hired some help in hopes of making herself more likable to viewers. How does one get that job?
